I've never had the pleasure to find a human skeleton at work.

Awful night…not having a bit to eat for 60 hours. Tired. Oh! What a night. Thunder lightning and rain. We followed our beeves all night as they wandered about. We hauled cattle out of the mud with oxen half the day. My back is blistered bad. Found a human skeleton on the prairie today.
George Duffield, drover 1884

    1. I'd imagine skeletons aren't so bad, it's the squishy stuff that sticks to them that smells.
